Cain Velasquez, two-time UFC heavyweight champion, made his debut in WWE during the first episode of Friday Night Smackdown on FOX back in 2019.
He immediately began a feud with Brock Lesnar, who was the WWE Champion at the time. However, his run in the company turned out to be very short and not memorable whatsoever.
His first and only televised WWE match was at Crown Jewel 2019 in Saudi Arabia where Lesnar defeated him in a little over two minutes. Cain Velasquez also admitted that he needed more time to develop himself in WWE.
Now it seems his pro wrestling return has been confirmed as Cain Velasquez will return to AAA in December. The announcement was made during Saturday’s Heroes Inmortales XIV.
The former two-time UFC Heavyweight Champion is set to compete on December 4th but no opponent has been announced as of yet. We will have to wait and see how Cain Velasquez will fare in his return match.
